WILMINGTON WOMAN 2ND CHANCE WINNER IN ELVIS* INSTANT GAME
DOVER, DE - February 14, Kim Mulqueen
of Wilmington, Del. claimed the trip to Graceland* that she won
in the second-chance drawing for the Delaware Lottery's ELVIS*
Instant Game. Mulqueen, 48, heard the news on her answering machine
after being notified by Lottery officials January 24. She claimed
her prize January 30, 2002.
"I immediately called the Lottery back," she said. "I was so excited, I guess I screamed into their voice mail system. When I realized that, I had to call back to apologize - again, to the voice mail system."
A self-proclaimed "huge Elvis* fan," Mulqueen entered the second-chance drawing a number of times. A regular Lottery player, she bought the winning ticket at Cumberland Farms #9912 in Stanton. She plans to take the trip she won with a friend later this year.
Mulqueen said she "definitely plans to keep playing Delaware Lottery Games."
